Re: Looking for a mechanic in San Diego.

A little north of SD but I would recommend San Juan Capistrano Ford. Ask for Rich Rader.

Re: Looking for a mechanic in San Diego.

What part of San Diego? They definitely know their stuff at San Diego Bus & Auto Repair (Ocean Beach). They work on a lot of commercial vehicles (e.g. bus shuttles, company vans, etc). I've only used them for basic service so far, but no complaints. Especially since they are walking distance from my house.

Re: Looking for a mechanic in San Diego.

It might help to know what you want the mechanic for. There may be a great 7.3L mechanic who knows very little about 4x4, who knows very little about a 4R100 transmission.

Thanks for the input.

I have a slight oil leak in the engine area, and would like to have the fluids changed in transmission, and differentials.

Re: Looking for a mechanic in San Diego.

I just had ProGear in Kearny Mesa go through my differentials, change engine oil & filters, install new locking hubs, renew brakes, install shocks and later R&R the brake booster when it crapped out. Mostly they do "gears" but are happy to do other work too. If the engine oil leak turns out to be major I'd recommend East County Diesel for that.

My good friend, Gary, owns Blades Automotive, 2750 Kurtz St, San Diego, CA 92110
(619) 298-2595.

Old Skool auto repair that everyone is happy with - he has worked on several San Diego SMB's and does a lot of van work for the Airport Shuttle businesses in the area.
